The article deals with the problem of the development of strategic skills of ESP reading. There has been grounded the necessity of students' mastering the above mentioned competence. The terms “reading strategies” and ”compression (sense reduction) strategies” have been defined.

The author gives a full description of the strategies. The strategic skills are suggested to be developed with the help of corresponding exercises and tasks.
